Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day¬†podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear.Today’s selection, featured on the Morning Show with John Richards, is “Silver Tongue” by Zulu Winter from the 2012 album Language on Arts & Crafts.

Zulu Winter - Silver Tongue (MP3)

Although Language is just their debut, the London five-piece Zulu Winter has been together for more than a decade. Four of the members started as 15-year-olds playing music together, but then went their separate ways - some of whom were rocking out in a Johnny Rotten cover band called The Next Pistols. They eventually teamed up again, calling themselves The Molotovs before they came to realize that the musical direction they were heading wasn’t quite right. After shifted gears and then holing themselves up for 18-months creating what is now known as Language, Will Daunt, Iain Lock, Dom Millard, Henry Walton, and Guy Henderson, have finally have a debut to showcase their talents to the world. That they’ve been working hard recently and opening shows for Keane and The Horrors in anticipation of the debut album should come as no surprise. Their melodic pop falls somewhere between both bands, as you can hear from the swirling synths and soaring vocals on today’s featured song.

Check out their website, where you’ll see that they’re playing shows around Europe and the UK, but unless you happen to be across the Pond for these dates, you’ll have to satisfy yourself for now with official video for “Silver Tongue”:
